By Ray Roman I never really planned on leaving my fulltime job to become a wedding cinematographer. I was working at a police department on the SWAT team when I entered the business, and I thought it was just going to be a hobby. Over time, however, I started booking more clients than I could handle, and I had to make the leap. I was obsessed with video production. My first lesson of advice to anyone pursuing a newfound passion while still working fulltime would be to take it slow. I never considered the backlog that was going to come with these jobs until it was too late, and although I loved every second of it, it was hard work for a novice. I had to work doubly hard to develop my craft.

Reviewed by Chris SanchezAKG recently sent me a pair of their new 451 ‘65th anniversary edition’ models as well as a D12VR to evaluate in studio. While not strict re-issues per se, these beautifully made microphones combine vintage and modern features to continue the legacy of these two great product lines. AKG introduced the original D12 in the mid 1950s, and it has been a favorite for kick drum mic’ing for decades. The 451 has a similar lengthy history, with that series debuting in 1969. AKG 451s have for decades been staples in music recording studios as well as on film sets and foley stages.
